Donald Trump just shut down the fake news media with the help of the last person he expected
The Atlantic’s story about Donald Trump allegedly insulting fallen soldiers was the Left’s latest attempt to take down the President.
But Democrats got some bad news.
And Donald Trump just shut down the fake news media with the help of the last person he expected.
Jeffrey Goldberg’s absurd story that Donald Trump insulted dead and wounded soldiers read like a fan fiction version of how the Left thinks Donald Trump acts and talks.
The Atlantic reported:
When President Donald Trump canceled a visit to the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery near Paris in 2018, he blamed rain for the last-minute decision, saying that “the helicopter couldn’t fly” and that the Secret Service wouldn’t drive him there. Neither claim was true.
Trump rejected the idea of the visit because he feared his hair would become disheveled in the rain, and because he did not believe it important to honor American war dead, according to four people with firsthand knowledge of the discussion that day. In a conversation with senior staff members on the morning of the scheduled visit, Trump said, “Why should I go to that cemetery? It’s filled with losers.” In a separate conversation on the same trip, Trump referred to the more than 1,800 marines who lost their lives at Belleau Wood as “suckers” for getting killed.
The White House forcefully denied the story as a pack of fake news lies.
Even a prominent Trump critic who called Trump “unfit” to be President called out The Atlantic for a false story.
Former National Security Advisor John Bolton told The New York Times he was present for the conversation Goldberg cites and flat out said Trump never made those remarks.
The New York Times reported, “He got support from an unlikely source on Friday when John R. Bolton, his former national security adviser who has broken with him and called him unfit for office, said he was on the trip in question and never heard Mr. Trump make those remarks. “I didn’t hear that,” Mr. Bolton said in an interview. “I’m not saying he didn’t say them later in the day or another time but I was there for that discussion.”
Hour by hour, The Atlantic’s story falls apart as more officials got on the record and deny this fake news hoax based on anonymous sources.
